Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Do not get me started on Irish-Americanism. Please.

Well, let's not lump everyone together, now.  I'm Irish-American.  

But through some bizarre combination of not looking it (apparently we are "black Irish" whatever that means - dark hair I guess) and not having been raised Catholic, we managed to escape that quintessintial Irish-American social thing.  Instead was brought up on liberal pagan stuff.  Bizarre...  But in all fairness, my family did not completely avoid the stereotype.  My grandfather was involved in some organized crime & worked for Kennedy. hahaha... And unfortunately there is a bit of the alcoholism in the fam... :(

But yeah, the Irish-Americans...  sigh...
